White wood and forestry residues have to be treated by means of a crushing and drying process at an end-use facility.
Particles have to be very small to fulfil the requirements of rapid heating and to achieve high liquid yields. Moreover, unless a naturally dry material is available, drying is usually essential as all the feed water is included in the liquid product (low grade process heat can usually be employed, for example flue gases from by-product gas or char combustion).
